State Department OKs $233M Jet Engine Maintenance Services Deal With Greece

The State Department has approved a potential $233 million foreign military sale of aircraft engine maintenance services and associated equipment to Greece.

The government of Greece is in need of depot-level services to repair and maintain F100-PW-229 engines equipped on F-16 Block 52+/52+ jets, the Defense Security Cooperation Agency said Wednesday.

The potential sale would provide for repair and return services, spare parts and accessories, technical documentation, engineering support, logistics and other programmatic services.

The U.S. government has not identified principal contractors for the proposed sale and will not need to assign additional representatives for overseas work.

DSCA said Greece has continuously committed to military modernization and would not have a difficult time adopting the requested services.

Pratt & Whitney, now part of Raytheon Technologies (NYSE: RTX), produces F100-PW-229 engines to power F-15 and F-16 jets.
